" I want to go back to Egypt" cried the Israelites at every turn. Today we would say "I like it the way it use to be" or "We've never done it this way before or "I was here when you came and I will be here when you leave!"
Our failure to sieze God's promises causes the world to doubt God's ability to fulfill His promises. I agree with Joshua and Caleb, the Lord will be with us if we are with Him!
God gives us the desires of our hearts and the words of our mouths. They said they would rather die in the wilderness and God said OK you will. They said 'we are to weak to claim God's promises and God said 'You are right, so I will give them to someone who will depend on my strength.'
Forgive me Lord for unclaimed promises and doubting words. Please let the world see your power and presence through a weak vessel like me.
